Retirement Tea for Dinah Smith and Pam Smith...

Special Teachers

It takes special people
To teach a child in class
To just keep his attention
In a world that moves so fast.

To show a child he is unique
With talents deep inside
To help to build his confidence,
So he can beam with pride.

To show a little patience
For a child who’s lost his way
To a child who feels abandoned
Who has seen better days.

To inspire and to motivate,
So a child can learn and grow
To go into the big wide world
That has its highs and lows.

Dinah and Pam Smith are special people
They always give their best;
And for every child who has been in their class,
Their lives have truly been blessed!
